Sleeper HQ NBA Top Picks

Gary Trent, SG Toronto Raptors

The Raptors are once again without Immanuel Quickley and R.J. Barrett here this evening which means more minutes for Gary Trent who entered the starting lineup against the Hawks in the team's most recent matchup. Trent is big time three-point shooter and in the month of January he shot 50% from three-point range. He has attempted eight three pointers in three of the last four and has gone over today's 2.5 three-point projection in four of the last six. The Bulls are also one of the worst teams when it comes to defending the three-point line, allowing opponents to shoot 40% from three over the last three games and the second most three pointers made per game overall this season at 14.1. 

Pick: More than 2.5 3PM (1.51x)

Jonathan Kuminga, PF Golden State Warriors

Kuminga is having a breakout season for the Warriors and finally cracked the starting lineup on Saturday which resulted in his sixth straight game with at least 20 points. The 2021 7th overall pick is averaging 20.1 points and 5.7 rebounds per game for the month of January which leads up to today's pick'em play. His line on Underdog Fantasy is set at 26.5 Points+Rebounds. Kuminga has gone over this total in six straight games. Today the Warriors are home against a 76ers team that will be on the second leg of a back-to-back and could once again be without Joel Embiid.

Pick: More than 26.5 Points + Rebounds (1.76x)

Jaylen Brown, SG Boston Celtics

There is just something about this matchup for Brown that he just loves. In three games against the Pacers this season he has scored over 30 points in all three contests. These ceiling scoring performances are driven by really strong first quarters where Brown has scored at least 10 points in the first quarter in all three games against the Pacers this season. Yes, one of those games was without Jayson Tatum, but I will continue to preach that understanding NBA rotations is the key to targeting these first quarter plays. Brown typically plays the first 10 minutes of the first quarter with nearly half of those minutes coming with Jayson Tatum off of the floor as Tatum is an early first quarter sub. With Jayson Tatum off the floor this season Jalen Brown averages 0.74 points per minute. We need just seven first quarter points tonight for him to finish higher than the projected line and as long as we can get an early bucket or two when Tatum IS on the floor we should be able to coast to another big first quarter for Brown against the Pacers this evening. 

Pick: More than 6.5 1Q Points (1.8x)

Combined Plays Multiplier: 4.8x
